A source in the Jackson camp says Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, 9, are adjusting to life without their father – two years after his sudden death.

“They are pretty happy kids now,” the source tells People.com.

“Prince and Paris are going back to [private] this year. They love the social aspect of it,” says the source. Blanket, on the other hand, “is still very, very shy. He’s still home-schooled.”

And Paris still “really wants to be an actress,” says the source. “She loved taking acting classes.”
